Welcome to five ideas and one coffee. Each week, a combination of what's going on in the ongoing convergence of digital and social media, and how that impacts the way we communicate. Plus, something I learned about coffee this week. Let's get started!
A brief history of Apple being doomed (in-depth business strategy things)
A history of the 30 years of PowerPoint so far. (Worth it for the small gallery of three images from PowerPoint 1.0 in 1987).
It's a catchy headline: One Bitcoin Transaction Now Uses as Much Energy as Your House in a Week, and is based on some speculative data, but it's a chance to reflect: how much energy is expended to power our digital lives?
Looking back on Uber's first pitch deck is a trip back in time, in more ways than one. Pictures of old, already extinct phones combine with a very different vision for Uber (before all the scandals).
Idea Five (the how-to's):
This year, I'd like to hear from you about what you've learned over coffee. In the meantime, the level of technology in new grinders is quite scary.
... that's it!
See you next week. Hit reply if you've learned something, or if you'd like to suggest an idea or a coffee.
